Quakers in Wales

Richard Davies, Welshpool, established a meeting in Penllyn in about
1662: "some friends and tender professors there received me kindly
among them in the power of God." The Quakers of Penllyn suffered
persecution. Colonel William Price of Rhiwlas certainly did not want
Quakers as tenants on his estate. One tenant, Cadwaladr Thomas,
was forced off his land and Friends who met in Cadwaladr's house
were heavily fined. A famous Quaker trial was held at Bala in 1676
when seven men and two women appeared before Justice Thomas
Walcott for not attending their parish church. When they refused to
take the Oaths of Allegiance and Supremacy, Walcott threatened to
proceed against them with a charge of high treason at the next assizes.
Such a charge carried the death penalty. The friends were imprisoned
and one - Edward Rice - died.

Although persecution in Penllyn had diminished by the early 1680s
many Quakers from Merioneth decided to emigrate to Pennsylvania in
the vain hope of establishing a Welsh Quaker settlement. Of the
known Friends who emigrated, 49% came from Merioneth. Penllyn
provided the largest contingent and it was this area which was most
impoverished by Quaker emigration. The Penllyn Quakers formed a
company to buy land from William Penn. John ap Thomas of
Llaithgwm and Dr Edward Jones of Bala were the main movers in this
venture agreeing to buy 5,000 acres, land which was then resold to
about 15 families.  [S6, page 14]
